Cintsa Thatching and Roofing was contracted to install a new thatch roof on this large, traditional home located in Cape St. Francis. The original roof was leaking around the drainage channels and needed the fire protection methods updating.
This old traditional home in Cape St. Francis was re-thatched with modern techniques ensuring no leaking and up-to-date fire protection methods.

Drainage at parapet walls is often a problem in thatched roofs of this style. Cintsa Thatching uses Aluzinc valley sections installed during the thatching process to protect against leaking.
Thatch is a beautiful roofing material to use if your roof design has sweeping curves and contours.

Thatch roofs need to be able to drain in wet weather. Many contractors struggle to drain thatch adequately. Cintsa Thatching install Aluzinc channels into the valley sections during the thatching process, to ensure clear and adequate drainage.
